We're trying out a change to how Willpower works. It now modifies the cooldowns of all activated abilities, not just mental mutations. Each point of Willpower above 16 decreases cooldowns by 5%, down to a minimum 20% of the original cooldown or a minimum 5 rounds. Likewise, each point of Willpower below 16 increases cooldowns by 5%.
We reduced the power level of Freezing Hands and (to a lesser degree) Flaming Hands.
Freezing Hands: reduced the magnitude of the temperature decrease and reduced damage from (level)d4 to (level)d3+1.
Flaming Hands: slightly reduced the magnitude of the temperature increase and reduced damage from (level)d6 to (level)d4+1.
New liquid: sap.
Added sap to the list of potential cure ingredients for diseases and fungal infections.
Creatures now bleed appropriate blood types.
Robots now bleed oil.
Plants now bleed sap.
Oozes now bleed slime.
Fixed an issue that caused shields to not apply their AV bonuses when you blocked an attack.
Made the Berate messages more sensible.
Fixed the reputation formatting on the Reputation screen for factions that love you.
Fixed engraved and painted items occasionally spawning with no historical events depicted.
You no longer get "x pours out all over you" messages when other creatures get liquids poured on them.
Fixed an issue causing cloned liquid volumes to share the source volume's liquid mixture.
[modding]Added the following tags to specify what blood type a creature uses.
BleedLiquid, ex: <tag Name="BleedLiquid" Value="sap-1000"></tag>
BleedColor, ex: <tag Name="BleedColor" Value="&amp;W"></tag>
BleedPrefix, ex: <tag Name="BleedPrefix" Value="&amp;Wsappy"></tag>

Added a new item: phase-shift grenade. It shifts the dimensional phase of everything in its area of effect.
    Added a new geological transition in very deep caverns.
    Added a UI option to display a message in the message log whenever you're in combat and your turn starts.
    Added a debug option to disable the limit of one defect per character.
    Missile weapon descriptions now display additional statistics, including weapon skill type, number of projectiles per shot, ammo use, and accuracy rating.
    Added a new debug wish: curefungus. It removes all fungal infections.
    Fixed an issue that prevented non-phased creatures from passing through phased walls.
    Fixed an issue that caused your character's color not to properly change based on HP and status when the new message log was enabled.
    Fixed an issue with Mark Target's cooldown.
    Fixed an issue causing monsters to fail to properly melee attack across map boundaries.
    Fixed an issue that caused baseline neutral monsters not to attack you after you've provoked them.
    Helping Hands no longer adds additional arms when you equip it to the thrown weapon slot.
    Fixed some engraved items still not depicting a historical event.
    You can now avoid steam damage by phasing or flying over it.
    Changed the default rendering API to DX9 on Windows, which should fix some issues with low-spec machines reporting DX11 support but crashing on launch because they didn't fully support it.
